"Poems for Ca$h" or "Will Write for Supper"

A Poem by Mark


 

                                  “Poems for Ca$h” or,”Will Write for Supper”

                 

 

                           Metaphors of soul express the musings of my yearning,

                 

                          Yet some they would compare it, to the power of their earning.

 

                           The written words of make believe that live within my mind,

 

                           To me are like a paycheck, though just another kind.

 

                           Investments of my consciousness yield dividends of sorts,

 

                           Not likely to be found on any quarterly reports.

 

                           The principals of prose and verse are taxable by none,

 

                           Yet their interest rates will still accrue, until all time is done

this is witty, playful, creative, and fun... the rhythm allowed me to get lost in the words.. I have seen other attempts at this idea, none as skillful or just plain fun.. the rhyme added a little punch and helped drive to the next line.. I admit, I am a sucker for it.. one thing.. and just my opinion, but might substitute "all" to "my" in last line.. I really enjoyed this!.. awesome piece..

I love this. Such complexity in the simplistic theme. I love the way you added great depth to the societal prose. Very well penned. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks very much.
My fav. lines: "The written words of make believe that live within my mind,

To me are like a paycheck, though just another kind."

The ca$h is everything for life so, the poetry`s. Nice imagery!
